Feeling cool in my coat

Hey you!

It has been a while since my last post and I feel really sorry for that! When you read a blog, of course you want to read more than just one post. As I am a senior, I'm currently living the hell called the test week + oral exam period. This unfortunately meant that I had to spend some more time in my books and less time behind the computer.

Anyway, let's talk about something more fun. Spring is just behind the corner (although this is hard to believe for me, in Holland it has been either raining or snowing for the past few days!), which means we can leave our warm winter coats in the closet and make place for cute jackets to prevent us from getting too cold.

I bought this jacket on sale almost two years ago, 
but since army jackets are still a must have this summer I will definitely wear it again this summer. 
H&M, €15,-

One of my latest purchases.
When shopping at mango, I couldn't resist this grey boyfriend blazer,
especially because it used to be 70 euros, but was on sale for only 20!
It was too thin for me to wear during the winter (I'm one of those persons that are always freezing),
but I think he and me will be inseparable this spring.
Mango, €20,-

This coat is not mine (yet, haha!)
I love this coat cause it's edgy but at the same time superclassy. 
After my exam period I think I might bring a visit to Zara.. Zara, €119,-

From the start

Hi there!

It is hard not to start my first post with a cliché, but I'll try. My name is Louise, I'm 17 years old, living in The Netherlands, and really good at procrastinating. In fact, I'm procrastinating right now (I should actually be reading books for French, English and Dutch literature, o well...). But on the other hand, this particular skill resulted into me making my blog.

About the blog: small kids, big dreams. When we were young we were all dreamers, we were innocent. The sky was the limit for us, the future wide open. As soon as we became older and more influenced by the world around us, we started to forget those dreams. Fairytales were replaced by reality. However, I believe that in every one of us there is still this small kid, full of dreams. Whether it is to create world peace, become a Pokémon trainer, own a Prada tote, sit front row at the New York Fashion Week, or to travel the world. My dream? I think I have multiple dreams, including the examples I just mentioned ;). I'll probably tell you about some of my dreams later on.

So, apart from dreams I think my blog will mainly be about fashion, style, beauty and life. Those are the things that really capture me. I can read fashion magazines for hours (yes, also during the time I have to study), and usually have a strong opinion about what's in the magazines. Today I decided I didn't want to keep these thoughts for myself anymore, and that's why I would like to share them with you.

I hope I convinced you to check out my blog another time and I'd love to hear your reactions!

Love, Louise

These are the totes from Prada I was talking about. Their model is timeless and you can match the bag with a lot of outfits (especially during summer time!). They come in so many cute colours, of which I think the light blue and the crème ones are my favourites. Too bad I cannot afford such a bag in any way..
